    Suspension woes ..

    I lost the upper ball joint drivers side , so I decided it was time to tear into it all . Finally found and purchased upper controll arm and lower ball joints and started on tearing it down . Now I am seeing I need the dustplates and might as well replace the lower controll arms as well as tie rods . I just need a little help finding all the RIGHT part numbers for the following :
    Lower control arm ass. with all the alighnment bushings , I show
    48068-28030 Lower Control Arm VAN; RIGHT
    48069-28030 Lower Control Arm VAN; LEFT

    and the steering knuckle (broke bolts off in it ....)
    43201-28010 Steering Knuckle Knuckle
    VAN; RIGHT
    - -
    43202-28010 Steering Knuckle Knuckle
    VAN; LEFT

    ANY help is truly appreciated , if anyone already knows a source ?

    Re: Suspension woes ..

    I recently had to replace the lower control arms on my van due to an accident. Everything I read on here stated that they were NLA. I was able to get a pair of NOS ones from Japan through the web sight jp-carparts.com. They weren't cheap (~$500 for the pair) but insurance payed for them in my case so I didn't really care. Came in about a week. I was pretty amazed as most people made them sound like pure unobtanium!

    Hope that helps!
